Allen and Charlotte Teal
Allen has worked with World Outreach since 1971 on both a national and international level. He has experience in many aspects of mission and is a respected missions leader.
Charlotte has over 12 year’s experience as a counsellor and is a member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors. She runs her own counselling practice in Auckland, specialising in couple therapy. Charlotte is also a trained spiritual director and offers life coaching.
We are now offering our services to the wider community of Christian workers.
For the past 3 years we have helped facilitate Missionary Enrichment Retreats in Taupo and we regularly travel overseas to offer pastoral care to missionaries and development workers.
We work across denominations and seek to provide holistic care for all people in ministry, particularly those involved in cross-cultural work. We seek to foster health (spiritual, medical, psychological and pastoral), restoration and healing.
We strongly believe in the value of member care to our mission community. Worldwide research has shown that when member care services are provided, the attrition rate of missionaries from the field is significantly reduced.
